I often find myself recollecting the memories of my life in the bustling city of Yangon. I came back to Myanmar in 2019, after being away from home for more than 10 years. I came back in the hope of contributing back to society and being used where I was needed. I was not the only one. Many people my age had returned home with the same purpose. We formed meaningful friendships. We gathered to hang out, shared ideas and talked about social issues; from climate change to traffic jams.
But the circumstances have changed. I sometimes wonder what it would be like if the military didn’t take over power. We may be in an indefinite period, but I believe that after the revolution, we will all be able to reconcile and create new memories. Until then, may we cherish those memorable moments.
People are staying together and making community who have same basic value of humanity and moral to form a stable and secure society. Each and every one is contributing for this community with their skills and capacities for the sustainability of it. People respects to each other, understand the diversity without judgement or discrimination and always think of inclusiveness. Such community can only be the good united community or the united community with diversity. I believe the art is the best platform or medium that can bridge among people for sharing and expressing of thoughts, feelings and opinions without words or languages. The opinions and voices of every participants is important and only the collective voices can represent and reflect the community. I want to search the collective answer of “What is union?” for our community through this experimental process. This exhibition is not only to watch my art creations but also a process or collective works that audience can participate. You can reflect how you grow up, what happening to you now and what you hope for your future. Then express it by participating in this exhibition. Please check the steps by steps instruction and feel free to participate!
